Summary: The instruction manual leaves a lot to be desired. Jpegs are superb. RAW images show considerable distortion if you process them in anything other than the RAW File Converter application that is supposed to be supplied on the CD that comes with the camera, but wasn't.
Summary: I've been using the camera for about a month now. As long as you are not expecting DSLR image quality or performance this camera is a good value. If you are the type who keeps the camera on "auto" all the time you won't get the best image quality.
Summary: I've been waiting for this camera ever since I found out about it a month ago and flew down to the camera shop as soon as they told me it had arrived. I had read all the specs and seen the pics of the camera, and wanted to find out if it was all style and no substance, or if there really was a heart...
Summary: just upgraded from Fuji 100fs. I like this camera a lot. Have powerfull lens, manual zoom, tons of settings, viefinder it one of the bad point, but dont use much, also manual zoom, kind of difficult. Macros habilities are superb.
Update on print quality - loses one star, may lose more

Summary: It has taken me a long time to do this review, for various reasons including weather and my schedule, but also because it is such a complex little beastie. This is an amazing little camera for the price, which is less than I paid for my first 3 megapixel camera ten years ago.
Summary: I have been trying this camera out for about 5 days now and overall I ma satisfied with it. There was a lot of hype and high expectations for weeks prior to its release and it meets some expectations and in my opinion does not quite meet others but that could be my lack of expertise and the need for...
Summary: Overall I am very pleased with the camera. Battery use is the main drawback, it is very battery hungry! I did have to switch off the evf/lcd switch for the screen, it is too sensitive and switches when anything passes in front of it. The only other problem is the on/off toggle switch.
My personal pick of the "super zoom" cameras currently available. Not perfect, but VERY GOOD

Summary: After researching the "super zoom", non-DSLR cameras I felt that some of this camera's features outweighed the areas where it might not have been the best in its class. Probably the three major advantages to me are the ability to zoom via the zoom ring (rather than buttons), the long zoom range with...
Summary: I bought my camera back in May. I did a lot of research previously, and couldn't wait to get this one. I was waiting for the price to go down, but was getting anxious. First thing I did was to take the disc into Office store and have the manual printed and spiral bound.
Summary: The things I like about it are: - It has a 30X zoom lens with manual controls and lens stabilization (anti -shake) - It uses regular (or rechargeable) AA batteries. I was trying to avid propriety batteries and chargers - The 3 inch LCD screen tilts up or down to let you take picture overhead or...
